I set out to make some scones but mid way decided to turn them into biscuits instead! Scones are just another quick bread I would say. Easy to make, versatile and to quote Jamie Oliver ” They are so delicious, so British, even a 5 year old can make them” To me Scones, take me back to my Enid Blyton days, when the kids of Malory towers would just go off to a picnic with their hamper tucked with scones and ham sandwiches!
This recipe has been adapted from Mary Berry’s 100 Cakes and Bakes, one of the first books on baking I had acquired and is full of easy doable recipes. To turn them into biscuits , I cut down on the baking powder and added some mashed potatoes for texture. These are neither too sweet nor salty , so serve it either with jam and cream or have them as it is with tea or milk.
A big hello to everyone. Well, I have been MIA for sometime now reason being a frenzied puja season. First an all girls holiday, then off the baaper bari for pujo and now back but neck deep into Diwali preps! Busy soul me! But then that’s how I like it to be. Being busy, keep doing something or the other but definitely keep going back to what I love most – creating new dishes in my ktichen and then blogging about it. My little time off to Goa with my girl friends worked wonders and completely rejuvenated me. And as usual my visit to my moms house was filled with laughter and food.
This Cream Cheese Buns recipe is something I saw Rachel Khoo make on TV the other day and I was kicked to make them too. Just followed a basic bun recipe and then filled them up with herbed cream cheese. Very easy and flavorful. The knots might seem a bit difficult to make so you can make your usual stuffed bun shape. It will work just fine.
I am hoping that I will be very regular with blogging and sharing from now on and continue to follow my passion! It is something that has given me a lot – new friends , recognition and much much more.
